If you’re like most people with lots of sewing projects to finish, you want the best way to do things, but also the quickest and easiest way too. Tara Rex shares a few sewing tips on how she saves some time finishing edges on a quick pillow project. Tara shows how she finished the edges of a fabric first before she even cuts what she needs for the pillow back. This way, after you finish your pillow front you can simply cut the fabric in half, overlap the finished edges and stitch your pillow together. You can use the fabric at the finished width, or trim it down for use on something smaller.

    I agree it's not clear at all but after some thought I think she's making a pillow cover for a throw pillow with a slit in the back to put your pillow in.. Like this: http://www.heytherehome.com/how-to-make-an-envelope-pillow-cover/

    I expect better and more complete demonstration from a paid subscription. If you want to remain competitive as an instructional venue you must demonstrate and not just talk so that you are more helpful to the person learning. thanks.
